Smaller health care merger proceeds without U of L
One week after Gov. Steve Beshear killed a planned merger between Saint Joseph Health System, Jewish Hospital, St. Maryâ€™s Health Care, and the University of Louisvilleâ€™s University Hospital, two of the players involved announced plans to move forward without UofL. Saint Joseph and Jewish have made public their plans to merge their health care systems under a new name, KentuckyOne Health, creating the largest health system in Kentucky. The system will collaborate with all health care providers, enhancing existing relationships and developing new partnerships.
